Our traditional town house in central York is over 120 years old. It is easy going, relaxed and friendly. We are lucky to live in York’s most fashionable area with a great range of local cafes, shops, restaurants and traditional pubs. Truly unique for this city and as travellers ourselves we know these small things really count.
Check out our great reviews for amazing breakfast and late night food options right on your doorstep.
There's a well stocked store open until midnight seven days a week and we particularly recommend the local fish and chips. Life just couldn't be easier!
Only a few minutes’ walk of the medieval centre, old city walls and the rail and bus stations the location is superb. No waiting for taxis, buses or long walks back after a long day seeing the sights. As lifelong 'Yorkies' we have endless personal recommendations, maps and guidebooks waiting for you.
If you love to cycle, we are on the local and national cycle networks with very easy access to all York attractions, universities and colleges. Bicycles can be hired locally and secure safe parking is provided. The 2014 Tour De France is going right passed our front door.
There is a bus stop outside our house for those exploring further afield. The York Tour bus passes by and you can hop on and off as you please. Be sure to wave!
Across the road is a riverside park with a fabulous reading café and the renowned York racecourse with amazing Saturday morning flea market is nearby (people come from all over Europe for this).
On departure, don't be carrying bags around. Pick them up later en-route to the nearby rail and bus stations.
We are open to ideas so get in touch and we will seek to accommodate. We have hosted lots of world travellers students, academics, workers, couples, single travellers, honeymooners and cyclists in recent months and received 100 per cent amazing reviews.

Thank you Julia and Paul, for a fantastic stay. Your home is as beautiful as the photos and I absolutely loved my 'room at the top', and the lovely bathroom and living room! You had thought of everything I might need, I wanted a place to relax and the room was very comfortable. What an amazing location too, right by the city and lots of lovely shops and cafes. I'll definitely be back.
Julia and her family were very welcoming, helpful and attentive. We had a wonderful night's stay. The accommodation was very clean and beautifully presented. It's a superb location as well, an easy walk into town.
It was great staying at Julia's place. She and Paul are lovely people and their children are very cute. I felt very welcome and at ease in their busy family home. The space for the guests is private, quiet, comfortable and clean. I enjoyed staying at "The Room at the Top" very much.
Comfortable room, exactly as described in a beautiful house in a delightful are of York with plenty of places to eat and interesting shops only a short walk from the centre.
Parking was no problem with a visitor's permit which you host can provide.
We will be recommending it to all our friends and family.
A really lovely place to stay, amazing decor and very comfortable room. Fantastic location, very friendly hosts. Highly recommended.
We love living in York and make good use of its many cultural attractions. We are into music, politics and current affairs and I am a trustee of a local community space. I grew up by the sea and return as often as I can. We travel regularly and prefer the 'make it up as you go along' approach. If money was no object we would live in Venice.
